Jeffco Heating & Air Conditioning Are Your AC Repair Experts!
Before jumping into the cost of repairing a window air conditioner, it is critical to understand the basics of these appliances. A window air conditioner unit is merely any small air conditioner that can be installed into a window. The primary use of these air units is not only to cool down specific rooms in a home but to cool down an entire house.
Although these units may be restricted in their uses, they make up for it in versatility. A window air conditioner, unlike large air conditioners, can be installed in just about any room in a house that has a window. The perfect thing about window air conditioners is that they can be located in the rooms that homeowners utilize the most. This way, homeowners are able to have their central air down and in turn run their window air conditioner. In the long run, this eases the power consumption and in turn is kind to your pocketbook.
Repairing a window air conditioner is not always the best idea. Most of this has to do with the way in which electronics in general are made. Instead of having electronics like window air conditioners repaired, we at Jeffco prefer for homeowners to just buy new units. That is why, in some cases, it is truly cheaper to purchase a new unit rather than repairing a window air conditioner.
Other than the labor costs, which vary from company to company, homeowners are also charged for the materials that are necessary to repair the window air conditioner unit. In some cases, new parts are not required, and the unit just needs to be cleaned. If this happens to be the case, homeowners are sometimes still charged the labor rate. This generally costs about $30 an hour. If you look below there is a breakdown of the costs of some basic components to fix window air conditioner units. Prices are taken from universal parts, so some costs may be higher for name brands.
A few extra things to consider may be whether the repair technicians are courteous and conduct themselves professionally, and whether service vehicles appear to be well-maintained. These small things will signify, to some extent, the type of workmanship you can expect to receive.
But when you have Jeffco on the job, none of those things are going to be of concern to you, because we act with nothing but character and integrity rest assured.
